NBOME Hosts COMLEX-USA Webinar Update for Program Directors
October 18, 2017
On November 1, 2017 at 3:00 pm Central Time, John R. Gimpel, DO, MEd, FACOFP, FAAFP, President and CEO of the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) will deliver a webinar titled “NBOME & COMLEX-USA Update for Residency Program Directors,” hosted by the Association of Osteopathic Directors and Medical Educators (AODME).
The NBOME advocates for holistic processes for residency applications, and cautions against the sole use or overuse of licensure examinations during the residency application process and recognizes that Program Directors (PD) face challenges in determining applicants with the best fit. This webinar will highlight the COMLEX-USA examination program, with a focus on resources for PDs and Coordinators relevant to interpreting COMLEX-USA scores. In addition, the presentation will feature recent enhancements made to the COMLEX-USA examination design and Master Blueprint, to be implemented in 2018-2019. Dr. Gimpel will explain the attestation process, a new step where PDs verify that residents are in good standing prior to taking COMLEX-USA Level 3. Dr. Gimpel will also provide insight on resources designed to assist DO residents in preparing for the COMLEX-USA examination series.
Finally, Dr. Gimpel will discuss the Core Osteopathic Recognition Readiness Examination (CORRE), a computer-based assessment tool designed to evaluate the readiness of non-DO candidates for entry into ACGME-accredited programs that have achieved osteopathic recognition.
